Merid­ian

Motor Trend - - Comparison Test -

Stan­dard on SE, $360 on S, 380 watts, 11 speak­ers incl. sub­woofer (left rear quar­ter)

Spec­tral: Dis­tinct bass, midrange vo­cals, and high-hat cym­bal def­i­ni­tion

Spa­tial: Only sys­tem to clearly place in­stru­ments and vo­cals across a panoramic sound­stage on the dash.

Dy­nam­ics: No loss of spec­tral def­i­ni­tion at low vol­ume, bass never over­whelms at high vol­ume.

In­tegrity: High vol­ume ex­cites a trim rat­tle.

Over­all im­pres­sion: Best, most all-en­velop­ing sys­tem of the three—and this isn’t the Sur­round sys­tem. But why is the hor­i­zon­tal tre­ble ad­just­ment slider lo­cated be­low the one for bass?
